1955 CJ-5 Durango, CO For Trade



Ben’s family is expanding, so he’d like to trade his CJ-5 for a more practical jeep, such as a Willys wagon, Jeepster Commando, or even an early Wagoneer. The jeep needs to be in the same condition as his Jeep. If interested, you can contact him at (907)347- 2 3 6 6.





Here is the pertinent info on the Jeep:
1955 CJ5
Located in Durango, CO
I’m the second owner
Has records and receipts dating back to the 80’s
Original owners manual and key/fob

Original F-134 (14k miles)
New saturn OD (<500miles)
Rear locker
upgraded rear axle shafts
Early powder coated 15″ combat wheels
700-15 Super Traxions

Converted to 12V
electronic ignition with new billet distributor
Warn 5687 winch
Fully rewired with fuse panel
Blinkers/Hazard lights
Electric wipers
1940’s ford air/water heater in cab (works well)
Working washer fluid setup
Working 1955 Viking messenger CB radio
Military gasoline personnel heater (in progress)
Modern stereo (nothing fancy, but it works)

Factory small drums all around
Willwood dual chamber master cylinder

New VDO oil pressure, voltage gauge, and tach
Working original speedo (temp gauge and fuel level all work)
Matching rear seat installed (folds out of the way)
Black ammo can center console
Rocky Ridge LED dome light
4 seat belts
Basic roll bar

Bikini top
Older soft top (windows are yellowed but it keeps water out)
Custom hard doors adapted to fit a soft top (also work with no top or the bikini top)
New front bumper, rear bumperettes
New spare tire mount
Some rust on passenger rocker panel

I drive this jeep every day and would trust it to drive across the country. It spends most of its nights in a garage but it will always start immediately well below zero. With the factory gearing it’ll keep up with highway traffic, but I rarely have it above 50 or so.

I’m listing the Jeep because my first kid is on the way and an early CJ isn’t the most practical vehicle. Hopefully someone out there has a Willys wagon, Jeepster Commando, or even an early Wagoneer in the same condition as my Jeep and might be willing to trade. I really want to stay with the old jeeps, but I need something that I can put a car seat in. I don’t really want to sell it outright, but I will entertain offers if someone really wants it.”
